Looking at RUVs always makes my heart race. It’s one of those things. Just affordable enough that you can imagine yourself getting one, but too expensive to really sink any money on unless you’re spending every weekend searching for Bigfoot or a chupacabra. If I ever do buy one, though, I want this: the Kawasaki Teryx4 750.
Billed as a “top of the line” recreational utility vehicle, the ride marries both practicality and fun, making for an ideal ride to take, whether you’re driving to the local mini-mart, sightseeing around the ranch or looking for pirate treasures buried near the haunted swamp. It seats for up to four people, too, so you don’t need to hit the trails alone.
The Kawasaki Teryx4 750 features a double-x reinforced frame that bring significant stiffness and strength for guaranteed durability, no matter the terrain. It also boasts sport-focused suspension, a continuously-variable transmission wide body track, 10.8 inches of ground clearance, a 16.7 feet turning radius (shortest in its class), Maxxis Bighorn 26-inch tires on 12-inch rims, 17-degree break-over angle, 23.6-inch water fording depth and high-performance breaks for guaranteeing a smooth ride.
Engine is a 479cc V-Twin with digital fuel injection that’s been tuned to offer more power in the low- and mid-range, the way an RUV requires. Other features include a roomy cargo bed measuring 18 x 48 inches, multi-function instrumentation, auto-style parking brake and a bolted cab roof.
Man, if they let these things on a highway, I’ll never take a car ever again. Unless someone buys me that new BMW M6. The Kawasaki Terryx4 750 is available now, with prices starting at $16,000.
